Caution: this video is not for the faint of heart. For those who make beer soap, I fear this video will render feelings similar to those of watching paint dry. However, for soapers who have never made beer soap, though wish to, but are hesitant, this is for you. I only sped up the video in 2 spots, leaving the rest at a normal pace so you can get a real feel for what takes place. Using this method does take time, but the end result produces a creamy, bubbly bar of soap!
In this video I have tried to explain in detail how to make cold process soap using ale/beer, and hopefully, I will have answered some of your questions. Please feel free to send me a private message if you have any questions and I’ll try my best to answer them. 🙂
**Prior to freezing the ale I poured it into a sauce pan and warmed it up until it the alcohol boiled off/evaporated. Alcohol evaporates at 172°F (78°C). Or you can also let the beer/ale sit on the counter for a few days to go “flat” but sometimes that is an invitation for ants to come visiting, or if you leave it out for too many days it will grow mold.
